View source: R/corr.ci.R

Description

Computes the half-width confidence interval for correlation coefficient based on the nonparametri method proposed by Olivoto et al. (2018).

Usage

1
corr.ci(data = NA, r = NULL, n = NULL)

Arguments

data

A dataset containing variables only or a symetric correlation matrix.

r

If data is not available, provide the value for correlation coefficient.

n

The sample size if data is a correlation matrix or if r is informed.

Details

The half-width confidence interval is computed according to the following equation:

CI_w = 0.45304^r \times 2.25152 \times n^{-0.50089}

where n is the sample size and r is the correlation coefficient.
